Worth a listen

In case you haven't heard, Ciarán over at Neither Indifferent Nor Sceptical spotted that RTE have archived their Reputations series over on their website meaning you can listen to shows you may have missed about figures like Padraig Pearse, Wolfe Tone, Daniel O'Connell and more.

The premise of the show involves two historians discussing these controversial figures in Irish history with one historian essentially defending the individual while the other is critical.

I listened to the first episode where Martin Mansergh and Ruth Dudley Edwards were arguing both for and against Padraig Pearse respectively.

It's very interesting and educational and well worth a listen.
